Ancic, I think.

Yea, especially considering he was 2-5 down in the first set and it sounds like he changed his gameplan and started coming to net, then was able to pull out an 8-6 TB after blowing a 4-1 lead in it... Very big match for him in a lot of ways, I think!

First Marat wins AO and now Xavier FINALLY wins a title, this is turning out to be an exciting season ;)

Izahol, i don't know.... maybe Ancic?

all right!!!! :D I guess Oli's results did him good! :worship:

I was thinking the same! I think Ollie's run at the start of the season really motivated him.
Now he has to try to keep having good results for a while...

This is great news... but on the other hand, Malisse is sort of boring now that he doesn't have the "no title" tag hanging over his head. It was all he had going for him ;) ;)

Leena

And let's remember that this is Delray Beach.

Yep, and no pity fucks with Anna if the occasion ever arose.

Sjengster
02-06-2005, 08:18 PM
Quite ironic, considering that the first final he ever made was seven years ago in Mexico City and he lost to none other than Cheery Jiri... plus losing the final here to Hewitt a few years ago as well. Well, it's good that he finally got the hump off his back, although out of the two titleless players who were in finals today I'd have preferred Sexy Radek making the breakthrough. We'll see whether he can win an event of higher quality in due course.

Chloe le Bopper

Heh. Yeah, poor him. As if Jenn Cap wasn't punishment enough.

FiNALLY!!! :woohoo:
now who is the highesr ranked player who has not won a title?? :rolleyes:
Ancic at No. 29 is the highest ranked titless man. and He always was. Malisse is not higher ranked than him.

Good on you Xavier! You deserve it after all the tough losses.
Now you can stick it to all the critics!
And so what if it's Delray Beach? Any ATP tournament is a good start.
And already someone is saying ' it'll be a while before he wins another.'
Some of you really are a little twisted. Can't you just be happy 4 him? ;)

Of course. Thank you Xavier, for giving us this excuse to carouse. :drink: Carole and I will be having a round of kriek lindemans.

That's so true. Malisse is in the top 5 of the "underachiever" department. It's not as if he lacks the talent.

It's good to see him again so high in the rankings.
